Petersburg Virginia

"The town of Petersburg" as it was presented to Northerners in The New-York Times on June 21, 1864, a week into the campaign. Although it does have some inaccuracies, it is fairly dependable. You are standing in from of the building marked "Lynchburg & City Point Depot."
South Side Station is the junction of two Virginia Civil War Trails, The Lee's Retreat driving tour begins here and continues to Appomattox. The 1864 Lee vs. Grant trail, which begins west of Fredericksburg, ends here. The station and Petersburg endured a 9'A month siege as the armies struggled for advantage outside the city.
